Confirmed victory

Please allow the Karma Garden to remain standing

This petition made change with 209 supporters!


A local resident who rarely sets foot on the Beltline has asked The City to remove The Karma Garden, saying that "it is not natural". City employees visited and photographed the garden this Friday. I am asking you to support my efforts to leave The  Garden standing by signing this petition.  Please, time is of the essence.  Thank you, and may good karma follow you.

A gift to users 

I built the Garden as my gift to Beltline users.  It has brought so much joy to so many, of all ages.  It has caused walkers, joggers and even cyclists to slow down and catch their breath. It has changed the social experience by causing strangers to interact with each other as they watch the garden change.

So many have given their time, money and plants.   A condo has given water.  I have spent days and invested over $2500 of my money to ensure that it does not disturb the natural habitat in which lives.  I hope to bring and house butterflies, and maybe the Monarch in this  beautiful, quiet space.

The Garden

I chose the most uninhabitable space of the Beltline for The Karma Garden.  It was a barren, poo-infested site that was, at times, threadbare, sodden, with partial sun.  It took over 100 bags of  soil, compost and  mulch to make this forgotten space liveable.  

It has been built as a butterfly habitat, filled with Joe Pye Weed, Bee Balm,  and Butterfly Milkweed.  It is bounded on both sides by complementary stock, such as Coneflower, Daylillies, Astilbe, woodland ferns.   There are also native Canadian shade plants:  e.g., Cardinal flowers, Black-Eyed Susans, two varieties of Trilliums, Wild Phlox and Jack in the Pulpit.
